Cashpile 73% Not too bad!

Not exactly what I wanted, but I noticed after I got home and started looking at my receipt that my commy over charged me by more than $6.00. I realize that doesn't sound like much but I would have met my budget if they hadn't over charged me. I was $7.16 over what I had figured.
Here's what I got today:
20 Advil to go packs @ 1.29 ea. Used 10-$4/2=$14.20 MM
6 Nutro 5 lb. dog foods @ 6.38 ea. Used 6-$7/1=$3.72 MM
3 Shick Twin packs @ .65 ea. Used 3-$1/1=$1.05 MM

6 Boxes Gluten Free Pasta @ 2.19 each. No Q's
1 box Gluten Free Cereal Bars @ 2.57 ea. Used 1-$.50/1 (tear pad)
2 boxes Crunch N Clean Dog Treats @ $2.79 (Shelf said 2.19). Used 2-$1/1.
7 Gatorades @ .79 ea. No Q's.
2 Tide Stain Removers @ 4.59 ea. Used 2-$3/1.
4 Jello Temptation Dessert Mix @ 1.00 ea. Used 4-$.75/1 (inside previous boxes)
1 Ky @ 1.87. Used $2/1=.13 MM
2 Herbal Essences Shampoo @ $1.89 ea. Used 2-$1/1
2 Herbal Essences Conditioner @ $1.99 ea. (Shelf/Saving Aisle said $1.89). Used $1/1

Still a good trip! but I totally know what you mean! I ended up spending about 4 dollars more than I should have the other day at my commy because the kettle chips are supposed to be 1.99- .99 cents after 1$/1.. and then I looked at my receipt and they were 2.69!!! and then the cashier charged me for 5 twin razor packs when I had four. Ugh.. this is not the only time this has happened where there is a price listed on the shelf tag and it rings up much higher. I am finding out that I need to REALLY start paying attention as they are ringing up the items. Because this happens to me all the time! and i never notice until I get home and start reading the receipts.

If you utilize the Commissary Coupon Spreadsheet, or something similar, it really helps prevent unexpected prices at the checkout.

I created my own spreadsheet. I create these for my job and mine is much more detailed. I added a few things as I was walking through the commissary, but when you are checking out with 5 children and a mother-in-law it is hard to pay attention to all the things you need to.
The moral of the story is not the spreadsheet, but shop alone! LOL

Any chance of getting a copy of your spreadsheet? I'm always looking for improvement.

Wizard spread sheet and gluten free

I will try to post my spreadsheet from work tomorrow. It is in Excel and calculates everything automatically including surcharge. It works.well with ipads and tablets. That's what I use so I can adjust on the fly.
Gluten free coupons are extremely hard to come by but they have a tear pad on the enjoy life display for .50/1 product so I got a few. The rice crispies q is also on kelloggs website but I'm still not sure why thy made a strictly gluten free one when the original was all ready gluten free. But my dh has celiac so I am always looking for new things and reading labels. Also per bush's they have changed their recipe and all the homestyle are now gf.
Hth.
April
Please excuse the typos Android phone auto corrects even when I'm right.

Pushpin Spread sheet

As promised though a little late here is the spread sheet I created for my shopping trips. It is very self explanitory and it will auto calculate when you enter the information needed.
This is created in Excel and I saved it as an xls file so it should open if you have Microsoft Office Program.
The first line is highlighted in yellow as an example for you. Be sure to begin your shopping list in this row because it is calculated in the totals at the bottom of the sheet.

**Saving: Be sure to enable editing so you can save the sheet.
**Save a blank copy so you always have it to start from. If you wish to save your completed grocery list save under a different name: ie Grocery 1.
**When your list is complete any remaining cells at the bottom of the sheet before your totals row will need to be cleared. (Highlight all remaining cells and right click-Select clear contents) *Do not save this over your blank one or it will delete all forumlas in the cells you cleared.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm sorry for all the edits and updates. It was very late last night when I finally got all the bugs out of this and posted it. I missed a few.

HTH with your shopping trips. It has made mine much easier.

Last update I promise...I actually attached the corrected sheet with column Q corrected.
I'm so sorry!
